Thursday. Had morning drill from 7 to 7.45—then from 9 to 11. In afternoon, the whole Brigade marched to Camp Banks to be reviewed by Genl. Augun. We though[t] our Brigade made quite a decent appearance, tho’ one Regt. Was not able to bring out more than about 200 men—a whole Co. being out on picket, & other men on post guard. Our actual strength now, we suppose to be about 300 men besides commissioned officers. These frequent reviews & inspections are supposed to portend “a move,” in some direction. The forces here have been increased of late by the arrival of Cavalry & Artillery, besides which several mortar vessels have come up the river within a week.
